Former Romanian consul arrested in Bari

A former Romanian consul in Bari was arrested on Saturday for drug possession at the end of a police operation that sought to identify the buyers and consumers of drugs, ANSA writes on its webpage.

Vincenzo Germano (aged 42), the director of a railway company and member of the leadership of Banca Popolare di Bari, was detained after 200 grams of cocaine were found in his house, the website of the ‘Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno’ informs. The cocaine was found in a flower pot. Germano stated that he was using the drugs in order to better handle work-related stress. Although no material used to wrap cocaine dozes was found in Germano’s house, the investigators do not rule out the possibility that he might have distributed drugs to his friends. Vicenzo Germano stopped being Romania’s honorary consul three and a half years ago, Alin Serbanescu, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stated on Sunday for Mediafax.

‘Vincenzo Germano stopped being Romania’s honorary consul approximately three and a half years ago. At that time the Italian authorities had been notified,’ Serbanescu said. According to the quoted source, Germano no longer has any contractual relation of representation with the MAE.
